3D imaging in harsh industrial environments

3D imaging in harsh industrial environments The Ranger and Ruler high speed 3D cameras from SICK meet the needs of advanced applications and tough industrial environments. The cameras measure 3D object shape at high speed and quality whilst at the same time measuring other object features such as grey scale and laser scatter (MultiScan). Measuring the third dimension provides knowledge about object height, shape, or volume. In combination with the MultiScan technology, most object information necessary for a robust and reliable decision is provided by one single camera - thus decreasing solution complexity and cost.

The Ranger and Ruler cameras are key components in SICK's many in-line inspection machines for 3D vision. The measurements are distributed over standard interfaces, such as CameraLink or Gigabit Ethernet, to a PC for further analysis. PC applications are built using the 3D camera development software that includes ready tools for 3D data visualisation and camera configuration. The 3D cameras offers high scalability with best price/performance on the market.
